Two Forever … The Real Deal

Solo 2_2_December 2009

If you squint, you might be able to see that I made this card with textured cardstock. Additionally, the narrowly matted image was mounted on the base using foam tape. Subtle texture. With the exception of the little red heart, I used this weekend’s couple’s wedding “colors.” 

Had the card been for a different couple, I might have added a smidgeon of narrow red ribbon, but the mother-of-the-groom (my sister-in-law) told me a while back her daughter-in-law-to-be hates ribbon. While it can certainly be overdone, I cannot imagine a wedding without ribbon. I can’t really fathom hating ribbon either. LOL.

Materials & Tools: White Daisy and Black Textured cardstock; Black and Tulip ink pads; Solo “2” and Solo “F” stamp sets; Cuttlebug w/Heart Blocks embossing folder; 3M foam mounting tape.

As you’ve probably gathered, we will be attending a ribbon-free, black and white wedding on Saturday. Godparents of the groom, husband and I are greeters. Dustin is an usher. It will be a good time, although I don’t think there will be any carriage ride for this couple. The high on Saturday is supposed to be 0, the low –12F. As my Scandinavian friends would say, “Oofda.” LOL.

My car is still sitting in the parking lot at work. A mechanic is going to look at it tomorrow. My fingers remain crossed it’s just “in a mood” – on strike due to the frigid weather or something.

Enough jabber. I hope you had a great day. Out of vacation time until my review date on January 13, I have to work tomorrow. Tonight, I’m going to play.

Thanks for stopping by! Later…

OHH NO about your car Kathi!!!
OH WOW about your card!!! I absolutely adore it. I think it is perfect and just fine without ribbon. I am thinking maybe I need a folder on my computer where I can put my favorite Kathi art...this one would go in it.
We are supposed to be FRIGID here too over the weekend...I feel sorry for the happy couple brrrrr.

I like the one with the Amore paper-piecing . . . but I honor you for respecting the tastes of the couple! It's an elegant card!

I'm keeping my fingers crossed about the car. Keep us posted!

I vote for your car balking on starting because of the frigid temps. Keeping my fingers crossed for you.

Excellent card. You are sweet to respect the bride's tastes. They will love the card for sure.

I hope you enjoy the festivities!

Sorry to hear about your car. Hopefully it is just being a bit tempermental with the cold.

As for your card with no ribbon, it's fabulous. I'm with you and can't fathom, though, somebody not liking ribbon.

Those little love birds look darned happy to be on your card!
Not like ribbon? NOT like RIBBON? Good grief....that's like...hmmmm....not liking CHOCOLATE...and that's just not possible.
